The fourth of the Old Testament promises providing a baptismal lens this Lent is the promise God makes to Moses: those who look on the bronze serpent will live. In today's gospel Jesus says he will be lifted up on the cross like the serpent, so that those who look to him in faith will live. When we receive the sign of the cross in baptism, that cross becomes the sign we can look to in faith, for healing, for restored relationship to God, for hope when we are dying.
By virtue of living in America, we are among the world’s wealthiest people. Yet we are tempted over and over again to believe that we do not have enough time, love or money to live. Jesus reminds us that it is the Father who provides for us and invites us into a life of generosity. Give with happy hearts and expect to meet Jesus.
The key text for March 14 is Luke 12: 22-34. Services at noon, 5:30 family-friendly, and 6:30 Holden Evening Prayer.
